Bernardus Evert Johannes Van Beek (1884-?)

Bernardus Evert Johannes Van Beek (1884-?)

I can't find out what happened to Bernardus. He was born 16 September 1884 in Rotterdam, son of Evert van Beek (1851-1927) and Elizabeth Bergé (1859-1940). The rest of the family came to America in 1910 and I have found all of them. The attached card has an entry for Bernardus 24-6-1903 A R . Anyone know what the A R means?

**Note- Elizabeth Bergé was not born in Breda as shown on card, she was born in Rotterdam, birth record akte.#492, daughter of Bernardus Bergé and Johanna Maria van de Leur.

Hello,

Attached is a part of the explanation of the abbreviations on the family cards of Rotterdam.

A R = Afzonderlijke register kaart ( a separate or individual /single) register card.

He was on June 24,1903 registered on this card and he came from the family card (G K). Why, is unclear.

But, when I look to his age (about 19 years) it is possible, that he went in the Dutch army for his duty. But, this is only my thought.

Regards.

Thanks, I was thinking maybe it was that he was in the military during or before WW I. I have found no marriage or deceased record for him anywhere yet in the Netherlands. If he did come to America at some time it is hard to tell which name he used, Bernard,Evert,Johannes,John or what ever. He brother Johannes arrived in New York 9 Nov. 1910 listed as Johan traveling with his father Evert.
Bernardus was listed on the first population record I found, not the last.

Hello,

Attached is the probably A R card of Bernardus Evert Johannes van Beek, Rotterdam.

He is mentioned on the written line 15.

On the right side of this card we see his occupation in that time:
He was “varensgezel” = probably in English “junior seaman”.

He lived: Schiedamsedijk 49 at the Salvation Army.
On February 3, 1904 he lived: Zwarte Paardenstraat 71-7 at his parents.

On February 17, 1904 he went to The Hague and was in a military barrack. (kazerne)

Regards.

Thank you Mr. van Duuren. I am not surprised he was at the Salvation Army, his mother and all of his sisters were members of the orginaztion and continued to be also in New York/New Jersey USA.
